Best Route for 600hp Mods

Sup fellers?! I currently operate a 2016 F350 DRW and am wanting to achieve around 600hp. I figured what better place to get great advice than the wealth of knowledge that dwells here.

Besides doing a delete, programmer, and CAI; what all would you guys suggest that I replace, and/or add, to make it to the 600hp? My truck will be used to haul heavy loads quite frequently so dependability is key. With that being said, what all would y'all do, or not do, to the transmission, differential(s), intercooler, fuel system, et cetera and why?

Any and all help will be GREATLY appreciated as always. Thank you guys very much and I hope y'all have a wonderful evening!

Get a modded factory style turbo from Jared @ Midwest Diesel & Auto. That will put you at 575 HP on the low end, with excellent reliability.

If you want more than that, put a stroker high pressure fuel pump in it from Exergy. That would acheive 650+ HP with correct tuning and the aforementioned turbo.

Nothing. Good tuning is key. They will live a loooong while at 600 HP.

Now at 650, you wouldn't want to be towing heavy on the race tune, or without traction bars. You could in fact hurt the trans empty if you were like me lol

Re: Best Route for 600hp Mods

Thank you sir! You don't recommend an aftermarket intercooler or anything? I've just always heard that you'd do better by replacing these items.
Yeah, definitely not gonna haul on race/aggressive tune. Whose tunes do you recommend?

No need for an intercooler. I thrash mine daily over 650hp and no issues yet. I would check out Tyrant or TSD for tuning
